February 2014

February was boring. There is nothing to report that you would care about. :)

So, instead I will tell you about the Little Rock Marathon which actually happened in March. 

I ran the half marathon. This was my second half. I am taking a break from distance running for a little while to let my body have a break! It will also be nice to not have my whole Saturday morning taken away due to running for a while!

The theme was epic- so there were a lot of superhero costumes. I was Supergirl and my running partner was Wonder Woman. The purpose of this picture is for you to see my socks!  They had little capes on the back of my calves. I thought that was appropriate considering this was a race!!

I got this sweet medal! It is a little ironic that the race had to be rerouted due to lightning. Ha. 

We finished in 2:52. Which I am happy with considering our less than faithful training. Our goal was to finish in under 3 hours, which we certainly did. I have two more 5ks this month. My goal is to get faster by running shorter distances, and then maybe work my way back up to longer races again.

January in Review

Y'all. What is going on? A monthly update a week after the month is over?  Who am I? Ha. You have the snow day (AGAIN) to thank. Maybe I am slowly getting back into the blogging groove. 

I spent New Year's Eve with a few friends by eating at Bonefish and then going back to someone's house for a game night. There is some video evidence of the rock band... However that will stay hidden as blackmail. Ha. 

I finally got my car back from the body shop due to the deer running into the side of me. It was there for three weeks, and when I got it back, the battery was dead. Nice. 

I saw this on Pinterest and it thought it was pretty funny. My name is Muscular Ass. What's yours?

January was super busy but not that exciting, so I don't have a lot of fun pictures. This is the third time this month that we have had a snow day. I am so over it. 

Here was my street last night after the snow had been falling for a couple of hours. 

At least we haven't lost power yet. I get a little bored stuck in the house all day! At least there are more options when the power is on. 

I am glad the Olympics are on so I have something to watch if I am stuck inside!  Go USA!

The end of 2013

I wasn't planning to write a post today, but I can't stand to look at that picture of myself as Michelle Duggar any longer. Ha!

Some of my friends and I went to Festival After a Dark benefitting CARTI. We had a blast!

They had a photo booth there and we had fun with that!  Photo booths definitely bring out the kid in you. 

I went to Iowa to visit my friend Catherine. We took a tour of the state capital. 

We went to the mall and there was a photo area in Crate and Barrel. 

My great great aunt turned 90 so we had a big party in Kansas City. 

For Thanksgiving I made these rolls that I found on Pinterest. They were easy and so cute!

One day as I was driving to the post office on my lunch hour, a deer ran into the side of my car. Everyone in the car was ok, but it was scary.  And the deer (which luckily was small) did $1800 worth of damage to my car. My car has been in the shop for almost 3 weeks, so hopefully I will get it back soon. 

Christmas came and went. Those two big green gifts are dog beds. It figures that the dogs in my family would get the biggest gifts. 

See this black sweater? It seriously cost like $7 and they accidentally left the security tag on it at Old Navy. I don't know why they feel the need to put a security tag on such a cheap item. Luckily I found a YouTube video for how to remove it. I think you can find anything on the internet. Ha. 

My mom gave me this medal hanger for Christmas. Now all my medals are on the wall instead of thrown in the closet. Hopefully in March, there will be another LR Half Marathon medal on there. 

After the LR half, I am going to switch to shorter races and try to work on my speed. I am tired of every Saturday being dominated by long runs. I need to get faster anyway, so I figured this was a good time. Hopefully one day I will go back to distance running, but I just need a break for a little while.
